Amy was introduced to Pilates in 2000 while living in Virginia, where her husband was stationed with the Navy. While juggling her work at a domestic violence shelter and her husband’s Naval deployments, she began looking for a way to relieve stress and keep her body moving and healthy. Pilates was the answer! After Amy and her husband moved back home to Tennessee, she continued her Pilates practice and in 2010 completed her comprehensive training with Balanced Body to become an instructor. With a background in Psychology, she deeply appreciates how Pilates can transform bodies through meaningful, mind-body centered movement. Years of collaborative work with bodywork professionals and manual therapists, along with personal experience, has reinforced for Amy the significance of Pilates for balanced strength, injury recovery, and overall health. By sharing her love of Pilates, she strives to empower others to take charge of their health and well being.
Amy has experience working with people of all ages and abilities from athletes to pre/postnatal women to individuals recovering from injury/surgery. In addition to being the proud co-founder of Nashville Pilates Company, Amy is a PMA® Certified Pilates Teacher and Balanced Body Master Instructor.
